    Idk but with the blazers apparently shopping oden and are really interested in ford through buyout or trade, I could see a ford for oden swap.
    Im not sure I want Bradley Bowie on our roster

    He is an expiring and still has some potential if he's used in a minimal playing role. TJ ford is a Ben h warmer. Ford for oden is a no brainer.

    pacers need to take a chance on somebody if they ever hope to get over the top. standing pat won't get us there and our assets aren't good enough to acquire a top 15 player. trading for oden, acquiring his rights, and hoping he somehow stays healthy could be a chance we need to take.

    Exactly. Its the only reason people on this board want him. Im born and raised in Indiana and Im almost always against bringing in "hometown" players. Fans wear rose colored glasses when evaluating them. We was great in college and had potential, so he was a high draft pick. So did Thabeet. Difference is Thabeet wasnt injured so he had time to prove he peeked in college. Injuries like Odens' wont just go away. Too early in his career to miss so many games to serious injuries. Look at J Bender or better yet Bowie like I mentioned before.

    Must we bring out Murphy for collison. Kirk Heinrich for bibby picks and Jordan Crawford or even the d. Williams trade. Anything can happen. There really is no point in arguing that the blazers won't accept a TJ for oden deal when they are shopping oden anyway and he is injured for the season and is not helping there playoff chances.

    Why? Assuming he returns to form, why would he resign here anyways. Better yet why would we resign him. He wont play so we wont even be able to evaluate him before this summer when he expires.

    We aren't at a place where we need to take a crazy chance. There are going to be far less risky shots to take out there in the next couple of years.

    Taking a chance that doesn't pan out can make it look worse than just being patient. Having a hobbled Oden on the roster and having to pay large bucks just in case won't look nearly as good down the road a couple of years.

    For further reference, see "O'Neal, Jermaine". The upside may be higher but the downside is a lot more likely.

    Not that I want him, but exactly. If they want him back they can just resign him next year. He's not playing this year. So we would have no better position than them to bring him back next year.

    who says it's a "crazy" chance? players have come back from the injury oden suffered to become all-stars or quality players (z randolph, stoudamire, martin). oden is 22 and i do not believe any of his injuries have been related to one another. it's like many of you think oden will cost $10mil/season to sign.

    Yeah bring those up, because not any of them are even close to comparable.

    Ford is an aging expiring contract player who has been benched 3 years in a row. If we don't trade him, he will be bought out, and the Blazers can sign him without giving up anything.

    Oden is still a young player who, while he has dealt with more horrific injuries than any young man should have to deal with, still has the capability to become a dominant big man. I have no problem believing that the Blazers are willing to trade him, but you better f'ing believe they want more than TJ Ford for him.

    Seriously, how does swapping Ford for Oden make any sense for Portland? Ridiculous.

    This can all be put to rest now that the Blazers have traded Camby for Aaron Brooks and Battier

    "STEIN_LINE_HQ Marc Stein
    A deal that WAS discussed today but I'm now told is unlikely to happen featured Houston's Aaron Brooks and Battier to Portland for Camby"

    That'd be an excellent deal for Portland, provided Oden comes back healthy next season and they find some depth at center.

    I'm glad that deal didn't go through. I'd love to get Shane Battier for TJ but seriously doubt it could happen.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.
